Château Tour de Ségur Red

Made from a terroir of character, the wines of Chateau Tour de Segur are distinguished by their deep color  and the subtle bouquet, all in finesse and generosity.


2012 red Château Tour de Ségur label

Wine style

Soft and Sensual

Grape blend

Merlot 65% / Cabernet franc 30% / Cabernet sauvignon 5%.

Weather

Spring was very trying, with considerable rainfall leading to fungal diseases of all sorts. This called for very close attention in the vines until the 14th of July, when the weather changed durably for the better.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

This is a friendly wine with a beautiful ruby-red colour.

Nose

The nose shows very ripe fruit and is extremely pleasant.

Mouth

The wine is very silky and smooth the palate, with elegant tannin on the aftertaste. It is ready to drink and especially delicious with duck and beef.
